Trivia

At episode's end, Charlie Eppes (David Krumholtz) is going to the kitchen to make some popcorn for his brother, Don (Rob Morrow), and father, Alan (Judd Hirsch), who are seated in front of the TV about to watch some 'classics'. As the scene fades to credits, the music heard is "Angela", the theme song from the show Taxi (1978); "father and son" are settling in to watch an episode of the show in which Judd Hirsch was one of the stars.

Cute tribute to Judd Hirsch's sitcom "Taxi"
6 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

I love when a show makes a reference to another show or activity related to one of its cast members. It always makes me feel like I'm in on a nice inside joke when I catch it, and if the show is a good one, that makes it all the better.

At the very end of this well-written "Numb3rs" episode, Dad (Judd Hirsch) suggests staying up and watching late night TV with Don & Charlie. He turns on the TV, saying "That's when they play the classics". Then, as he settles in the easy chair next to Don (and Charlie says he'll make popcorn), you hear the theme music from "Taxi", Judd Hirsch's classic sit-com from 1978-1983! The camera lingers on Judd Hirsch's face, reflecting the light from the TV, then fades out to this episode's Director's credit while the theme from "Taxi" continues to its end. CUTE!!
